us live from paramus. she has been there all morning and has more on the investigation. >> reporter: the county prosecutor here describes the shooter as someone that is depressed and despondent. he says that that was part of the reason he may have come in here not necessarily inflick harm on others but to draw -- not necessarily to inflict harm on others but to draw attention to himself and kill himself. police say 20-year-old richard shoop walked into the garden state plaza mall in paramus, new jersey, just before closing and opened fire. these women came face to face with the shooter. >> out of nowhere, the guy walks right past the front door and he is shooting shots in the air. >> he paused for a second and just looked inside the store. i just froze. >> reporter: police quickly responded and s.w.a.t. team members stormed the facility. >> the shooter, for whatever reason, instead of staying and fighting, fled deeper into the mall. >> reporter: officials put the mall in lockdown and began a methodical search for the suspect as well as anyone who
may be hiding, for safety. >> we go store by store, room by room, and that takes quite a while in 2.2 million square feet. >> reporter: authorities escorted individuals out of the store one by one as they cleared each room. >> it's okay to go. >> reporter: the cell phone video shows what it was like for the people coming out. >> let me tell you, it is the scariest thing when you see the s.w.a.t. team coming, waiting at the door for you to come out. >> reporter: shortly after 3 a.m., shoop was found dead. >> one of the s.w.a.t. teams located the suspect in the back room dead. >> reporter: authorities say it appears shoop was on a suicide mission and didn't want to hurt anyone else. everyone made it out of the mall safely according to officials. but there is still a police presence here. there are still barricades around the mall because this is still a crime scene and the investigation continues. the mall remains closed for the rest of the day. reporting live from paramus,
new jersey, jericka duncan, now back to you. >> do we know where that shooter got his gun? >> reporter: he got it from his brother according to police and really not as if his brother handed it to him. but officials say it appears the shooter stole the gun from his brother and that is the weapon that he used to fire at an escalator, again, not necessarily in the direction of anyone, not to harm anyone, but essentially police are saying that this was a suicide mission that he wanted to draw attention to himself, that he had been depressed and he had a history of drug abuse and law enforcement officials were familiar with him on that end. but there doesn't seem to be any methodical plan that anyone can see right now in terms of notes that he left about coming here and shooting anyone or plans to do anything elaborate but officials still wondering essentially, you know, why did he decide to come in here just to fire the shots, draw that
kind of attention to himself, only to end his own life. >> you talked about the notes he left behind. what did the gunman say in them? >> reporter: the prosecutor that i spoke to, the county prosecutor, within the last hour would not give specific details. but he said it seems as though this is maybe a note that he wrote a couple of months ago. he also alluded to the fact that the shooter may have had some legal issues and was very depressed about his life and where it was heading. only 20 years old and had had run-ins with the law. so there were no specifics given about what the note said. but it did give more indication into i guess how depressed he was and felt like his life really was going nowhere. >> okay. jericka duncan live for us in paramus, new jersey, thank you. it's 6:04 right now. let's check in with liz on the morning commute. >> it's been rough. one hotspot clears and then we get a new one so this is the accident we have been watching in richmond. it's westbound 80 by the
central exit. mobile 1 just drove through on westbound 80 to the eastshore freeway saw the pickup truck still on its side blocking a lane of the it's jammed up. you can see it's almost backed up into pinole. not quite but definitely towards those richmond exits. now, all that traffic is gridlocked behind the accident. so it's actually making for lighter than normal traffic over at the bay bridge. still no metering lights and it still looks good especially in the middle fastrak lanes. but the eastshore freeway, that drive time is really beginning to build. also, big delays still through the altamont pass and the livermore valley. we had an earlier traffic alert in livermore which is canceled, that is the latest traffic. here's lawrence. >> a great day ahead weather- wise lots of sunshine all the way to the coastline this morning. temperatures all over the map. a little warm in some spots for this time of the day, 42 concord , 45 santa rosa, 53 degrees in san francisco. toward the afternoon everybody enjoying sunshine and these

happening today, polls will open in two hours for elections in some bay area cities. sunnyvale voters are deciding on measure c a series of gun control laws. issues include reporting of lost or stolen guns, keeping track of ammo sales, requiring guns to be kept locked away, banning magazines that hold more than 10 rounds with some exceptions. opponents say that's not necessary. >> that law has already been on the books in california. it's no different than what's already in the books so it's completely redundant. >> our community, i'm going to say, is not afraid of the nra. >> the nra has threatened to sue if sunnyvale voters approve measure c. new this morning, the pleasant hill city council approved new regulations on gun sales. the new ordinance requires gun dealers to keep their distance from neighborhoods, parks and schools. they also have to install alarms and turn over employee background information to police. friends and family plan another march today to protest the death of andy lopez, the sonoma county teen shot by a
sheriff's deputies. lopez's parents filed a federal lawsuit yesterday against the county and the deputy erick gelhaus. the suit claims last month's shooting was reckless and violated the teen's civil rights. investigators have said he opened fire after the teen refused orders to drop a weapon that looks like a real ak-47. an attorney for sonoma county says the lawsuit is premature and, quote, has the potential of interfering with the conduct of the full criminal investigation. time now is 6:11. from grade schoolkids to celebrities, bullying affects everyone. the voicemail and text messages prompting the nfl to investigate a miami dolphins player. plus -- >> the internet never forgets. >> and that means nothing you post is really safe. what you can find out about someone just by looking at social media posts coming up. >> enjoying lots of sunshine around the bay area for today. but enjoy it. we have a major change in the weather pattern coming up. we'll talk about it coming up.
>> and if the eastshore freeway commute wasn't already bad, we have a new accident in the backup. we'll have your latest travel time there. but first, we want to know what drives you crazy during your commute. you can ask a question or share a gripe with us by e-mailing at firstname.lastname@example.org. or you can tweet me directly at #wengerelizabeth and watch to see if your question is answered on air. we'll be right back. over the next 40 years the united states population is going to grow by over 90 million people, and almost all that growth is going to be in cities. what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off.
the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so that we can take all the lessons from the revitalization of urban america to other cities. so we are now working in chicago and in washington, dc and newark. it's amazing how important safe, affordable housing is to the future of our society.
